Sharpton traveled to Newville from Sanford, Fla., where he has been leading rallies and supporting the family of Trayvon Martin. The unarmed teenager was fatally shot last month by a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, who says the shooting was self-defense.

Sharpton and other civil rights leaders say Zimmerman should be arrested and prosecuted for Martin’s death.
